Specialties

Dr. April L Ulmer has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I am totally disappointed with the care that Dr.Ulmer has provided my son, she has guessed at her diagnosis' of him based on his complexion. Claiming that he looked like he had celiac diesase and put him on the gluten free diet while we waited on the test result. Which he didn't have, told us that he thought he had another condition when he already had a test that ruled it out because she didn't bother to review his medical test. It took his other doctor requesting his test to rule it out. I am currently looking for another GI specialist for him because after two years of expensive tests and drugs we still are only told he has reflux. And to check back with her nurse practioner.

My son had an egd done by this doctor. From the time we set up the appt to have the surgery done until the day of the actual surgery as well as after the surgery we were told it would be 7-10 days on results from biopsies. I was told by more than one person 7-10 days. Here we are 18 days after the surgery and I've been told nothing. All the nurse keeps telling me is that they haven't gotten everything back yet and she will call when they do. Don't tell someone 7-10 days if sometimes that may not be the case. I understand things happen and everything doesn't always go as planned but they shouldn't all say 7-10 days indefinitely if sometimes that isnt the case.

She was supposed to recheck my 9 month old in 3-4 weeks for possible colitis. They called to reschedule for after another 6 weeks! She obviously did not care about him. He had even been in the ER the night before and they still would not move his appointment forward. I could not even get them to answer questions. After the initial visit a nurse practitioner is relied on for treatment and advice. I do not recommend this doctor or practice.
